Mediocre books on our national game are churned out at depressingly regular intervals. This is one to cherish, of the highest quality in all respects. It's a first rate reference book that is lovingly and entertainingly written while retaining a balanced outlook and a refreshing fair-mindedness. Any book of this nature worth its salt will inspire debate and disputes as to why certain players are included and others omitted. It seems to me strange that so many women are included, most of whom would mean little or nothing to all but the most dedicated follower of the women's game. And no Alan Gilzean......no Mike England and ...well you can mourn the absence of your own favourites who fail to make the book. It's a handsome volume and robust too - just as well as the Christmas copy has already made its way through many hands young and old. Now that it has made its way home it will never remain on the shelf for long. I know it will afford great pleasure for many years ahead.
